QPB might have something to say after KPB has been under her feet without SW after a few weeks.

Have tend to agree with KPB, some of the stuff said becomes quite unpleasant at times. I can understand the negativity as there is quite a bit of uncertainty. What I don't understand is the unnecessary digs at either individuals on here or at the club. So... Peace out!!

I would normally agree with KPB and take a summer-break.

The only issues are 1) the season hasn't finished 2) whether rugby may/may not return 3) the seeming melt-down @ CG 4) Lockdown gives a lot more down-time to us retirees 5) Difficult not to comment when one sees some of the drivel spouted on SW !!

1. It has.
2. I can't see it until Sep / Oct and behind closed doors.
3. Conjecture, not facts, which fuels the Lockdown mania.
4. We've noticed. ;)
5. No mirrors in your House GM? :D

I was of the same opinion about rugby being behind closed doors - but have started to wonder.

My understanding is that theatres etc are starting to develop plans to open (later in year) but with social distancing. I assume that mainly means having spaces between audience etc. Plus some logistics around the movement of people.

Hypothetically... if rugby clubs were allowed to do something similar, would that be feasible? I.e., making sure people weren't sitting within 2 metres of others (obviously discounting families etc).

Rugby has an advantage that it's outdoors.

I have no idea how many club members they have at Gloucester - but just wonder if that's something that could be explored at some point later in the year.

Should be fairly simple to do.

The seats don't move, so easy to work out 2 metre rule (though I suspect that may get cut in half shortly). How the guy in the middle goes to the loo, may be an issue, but he will only have 3 or 4 people to get past, and they can move into the aisle somehow.

In the shed/tump, put circles on the floor and you have to stand on them....simples.

Toilets are the difficult bit, but maybe strap on catheters for the duration :D

Not quite that simple, I would suggest.

What about the family of three/four/five, with young kids who all want to sit together? I think it would be a logistical challenge to set up ticketing systems to be flexible in some regards, yet rigid in others. Doubtless Ticket Master have this problem solved, mind. The Shed might be easier, but still needs 'policing'
